SOoooo. I finally went to the dyno today and tuned it.
If everyone remembers, i made 173whp before. Since then I have added:
-Boig header. OBX before
-custom SPD collector
-custom jesse prather cams with tons more lift than the toda cams I had
-filled the injector holes ( they just had plugs in them before)
-custom crankase evacuation system.
- no to mention all the money ive spent for custom fabrication, parts, fluids, materials, labor, machinework to re-do the head etc...
Verdict: $4k later and I only made 11 more hp (184whp). Wow. I am ------- pissed. Extremely dissapointed and gutted.
I have well over $10k (maybe $12k, i havent been keeping track) and I barely have as much power that i could get by bolting on an ebay turbo kit on a stock engine.
I am extremely embarrassed!
I dont know why I can not meet my goals.
Even jimmy made 184whp (albeit on a different dyno) with the same tuner as me. And his motor was not half the motor that mine is on paper. He was running the same compression as me, however stock bore (im .080 over), he had stock valves (mine are 1mm over). His cams had less lift. his header was an inferior design to the boig. His engine wasnt even balanced. he had an untouched factory crank and rods.
im at a loss...
I think I want to sell the car now. I just bought an 09 g37 sport sedan last week and im loving it
Who the fuck takes a 3 m.o. to a midnight movie anyway? It's not like the thing even knows it's there other than it can't sleep. Stupid irresponsible parents....much like the "I'm going to sue because a baseball hit my child" asshole.
